    Hey guys

    With the scarcity of most pistol powders I took the CSB-1 plunge.

    With nothing (at the time) published I collected bits of data here, bits there, and eventually gained enough confidence to use Hodgdon's Universal load tables.

    Spent Saturday testing loads, shooting at range, having fun :)

    The bulk of the QuickLOAD predicted velocities are based off Universal, some are based off CSB-1 itself (I very recently updated QuickLOAD's data file, and now CSB-1 through CSB-6 is listed. A quick check of a few loads predicted about a 10% velocity reduction using CSB-1 vs. Universal, though the numbers in the table below contradict that).

    Not enough time in the day to note spreads (though they were generally pretty minimal), just the # 'in the middle'.

    DISCLAIMER: Don't use these loads, use published data. These loads worked in MY guns (TP-9, XDM, XDS, etc...).

    Velocity taken at 10' with a ProChrono Digital. Primers S&B (except 10mm=CCI 300).
